COVID-19: As with many things in the coronapocalypse, the Fort Collins pools are now closed through at least April 15th. This means that we’ll miss three scheduled weeks of polo, but hopefully still get three weeks of play before the season is over at the end of April.
Once we see that the closure isn’t extended further, I’ll be happy to issue partial refunds to those who paid for all of spring season. Another potential option on the table is to extend our season into May instead of doing refunds. Please reply if you’d be interested in May polo in spite of the river coming up.
Also, I’d rather wait and do refunds once in case the closure is extended, but if you’re in financial distress from the current cluster&*%^, let me know and I can refund you for the dates we know about sooner.
Club Changes: Mountain Kayak Polo is no longer just a loose association of boaters, we’re an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit operating under the name “Fort Collins Kayak Polo” in order to avoid any paperwork confusion. If you see both names around, that’s why. Our mission is to further the sports of kayak polo and kayaking in general, both locally and internationally. This means more youth development and international competitions like U.S. Nationals. Stay tuned for details.
Roll Sessions: We run roll sessions every night that polo is on in the east pool. Grab yourself a punch card to save a few bucks. Without a punch card, rolling costs $10/night. A 5 session punch card costs $40 ($8/night) and a 10 session card costs $70 ($7/night). Valid any polo night and the cards have no expiration so you can also use them next year. Not valid for polo, one person per punch card.

New Player Orientation: On the first night of each season (Fall, Winter, and Spring) we’ll have a rules/reffing/club talk for new players or those who want a refresher — Be to the pool early, about 8:30 pm, and let the organizer know that you’d like to be in on the orientation talk. If you can’t make it, you can familiarize yourself with the game by reading our How To Play Polo section, and click to read more about gear and safety.
